Awesome almost full pad of French Line paper … the cover is a clever graphic of a modern funnel in the bright red and black colors. The inside is ready for all of your liner notes and scribbles. Excellent condition!
Interesting portrait ashtray for the Magnificent French Liner. The glaze shows browning and crazing … but the image of the ship is still excellent. I think it looks rather shabby chic. Good condition no cracks or chips etc.
Covers all classes for the SS France for her forth year of service. Awesome tricolor funnel graphics including the French Arc de Triumph and Notre Dame. Great Overhead profile SS France pictured inside
Covers all classes for the SS France for her second year of service. Awesome tricolor funnel graphics
Lovely deck of blue trimmed cards for the SS France. Probably bought onboard. All there and in great condition.

Great little booklet welcoming folks on board and explaining nautical terms and on board info.
Very extensive coverage of what to expect on the voyage … including deck, room and activity information etc etc. 36 or so pages. Excellent shape .. a little glue residue to the back cover … must have been a scrapbook memento at one point.
Great little folder for the French Sisters. Lovely profile and some interior pictures. The were paired in the certain times of the year for West Indies services and cruises. Great condition …like new with a little sticker blemish on the rear panel.
Written in both English and French .. the program has several pages all dedicated to onboard charity activities and the organizations the funds would be donated too. great graphics The pages are all aged and discolored a bit and a few bumps … but complete. Dated March 1935.
Lovely photo of the flagged be decked ss France … probably during her Maiden Voyage. famous image that was used on all sorts of publicity material her entire life.
very heavy Glass/crystal CGT ashtray … modern and introduced on the French ships in the 60’s after the France made her maiden voyage in Feb of 1962. This is really heavy, well made in excellent condition. Probably swiped right from the First Class Smoking room.
Outstanding French Line bulletin-magazine to celebrate their 100 year anniversary. the cover shows a the entry to the salon Natique international … which included one of the Normandie’s propellers on display. the inside of the magazine is full of different photos of the exhibit and items included like models and agency paintings. there is also a wonderful French Line history (written in French) that explores the fleet in depth. Also lots of adverts! A few surfs to the covers ..awesome item!
Lovely copy of the onboard newspaper … right for the maiden year of the SS France! The cover is an outstanding picture of the SS France’s upper deck and twin Funnels… I believe they are in Southampton… you can see 2 Union Castle vessels in the background. filled with French and English stories. The back cover has some glue marks … this was probably mounted in a scrap album at some point … great shape!
This is really a unique brass souvenir ashtray for the French Line Flagship SS France. This appears to be solid brass and is VERY heavy! Just love the port profile view of the French lady … you can even see the wings on her mighty funnels! Unique and in good condition!
This is the best fold out for these little ladies. It is HUGE one side is a superbly executed route maps with excellent graphics: the reverse side is dedicated to interior pics and info on the ships. In general, about the best foldout I have ever seen, awesome green and orange coloring.
A great plan .. the cover has a Cassandre like bow on view of the ship surrounded by line sketches of Paris landmarks. There is an agency stamp on the cover and different pictures on the inside with the plans. A 325 is written on the cover and looks like a nice outside cabin. the plan is in great ship with a few pin holes from a prior owner. Dated 7/15/52
Really nice cabin class DP for the Ile. The plans are color coded and there are several pictures of room and the ship. I preferred her post war appearance and Interiors. In great shape except one of the corners if the back corner is clipped.
By far the best brochure ever done for the Flandre .. this is crammed full of huge photos of her marvelous interiors. She was nick named the “flounder” when she barely limped into NY Harbor on her maiden call … she had to go back to her builders for some major repairs. She sailed as the Carla C for Costa later in her life, and ultimately burned like so many French built ships. A magnificent brochure in outstanding condition… Marin Marie Centerfold of the ship.
Just the best post war brochure for the lovely Ile. full of interior photos and awesome centerfold port profile.
the picture in here are b/w but very crisp and detailed … I loved her post war interiors.The brochure covers all 3 classes, First, Cabin and Tourist. In great shape Gorgeous color cover graphics. The best brochure for her! stock photo
Awesome menu for a Tourist classe lunch onboard the outstanding French Flagship. A true deco masterpiece .. one of the most perfect liners ever.
The food onboard was noteworthy … more gulls supposefly followed the french line ships in search of scraps. Not really common to find any Tourist classe items. In great condition though yellowed. Lovely cover graphic of the steam powered frigate Audacius.
Really a great fold out brochure for the France. The pages are dedicated to various interios shots, the centerfold is a lovely 3/4 profile of the ship and there is a nice simple cut away fold out for her as well. Text in English and French.
There were 910 folks on board this voyage … 310 of them were first class and listed in this passenger list. Not a bad load number for the ship this late in her life.
The FRANCE certainly was not packed … but there were a good number of Fist class passengers on this crossing. She would not be in service much longer for the French
First class passenger list for the lovely Liberte … This would have probably been a rough crossing … and certainly frigid. Rebuilt formt he German recordbreaker Europa Post WW2, she was never really pushed by the French for speed …only a few months later the SSUS raced accross the Atlantic and captured the speed record forever.
Great little key chain celebrating the last French flagship the SS France. The is in excellent shape .. includes the famous medallion image of the ship and the flip side her “busty” personification.
